Varejao was having a very solid season for the Cavs up until this point. In 26 games (all starts) this season for the 11-year veteran, he was averaging 9.8 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game.
The sudden loss leaves the Cavs without their starting center for the rest of the 2014-2015 season. Tristan Thompson and Brendan Haywood of the Cavs are expected to see their roles increase, or the Cavs may pursue someone via trade or free agency.
Anderson Varejao is a huge loss for Cleveland. Cavs were already efforting to acquire another big. Expect those efforts to be ratcheted up.
